A group of our Year 11 girls visited University of York Friday 1st December. The girls who attended have some high aspirations to work in roles such as a forensic psychologist, police officer, surgeon, social worker and nurse. They found the day informative as they learned about choosing A Levels, applying to university and budgeting at university. The day also involved a study skills ‘BrainBox’ session and a celebration of their time on the Shine programme. They were all worn out when we arrived back at 6.30pm but they had found it extremely useful too!

Great Opportunity

TV production company Label 1 – makers of the award winning ‘Hospital’ (BBC Two) and ‘The Job Interview’ (Channel 4). Are making a new factual, family entertainment show and we're looking for families to take part in a new show for the BBC. We will follow a number of families as they go head to head in a series of fiendishly tricky highly compelling and wonderfully entertaining challenges and puzzles.  We hope it will be a valuable educational experience for all involved, promoting logic, reasoning, strategy and creativity whilst engaging families in healthy competition within a supportive TV environment. The programme will feature family groups comprising of 2 adults and 2 children aged between 9-17 years old. Family groups are all inclusive and can include parents and children, but also aunties and uncles, grandparents, cousins, nieces and nephews. I understand that you work with schools in Yorkshire, Humber and North East to help them nurture their pupils who are from under represented background but who are high achievers. I would love to be able to present these pupils with the opportunity to take part in this show. Would you be able to pass on the information to these pupils please?

Year 11 Shine visit to York University

Today 15 of our Year 11 students graduated from the Shine Project. These students have been on the programme since Year 7 with York University.

The students were an absolutely credit to themselves, their parents and the Academy.

They were asked to attend in Business dress for their final day. Mia Fleming won Best Dressed Female, although I have to say I was very impressed with the effort a lot of the students did make.

Well done to them all
